Live Music, Oysters, Wine & a Family Fest!

This weekend the North Fork showcases its wine, live music, natural bounty, and much, much more. Get back to the land by touring (and sampling) an organic farm or a shellfish hatchery.

Live music abounds all weekend, so you can dance your heart out.

Are you a woodcarver? A folk dancer? Ever wanted to give either a try? This weekend you'll get your chance.

This weekend's also your last chance to catch the North Fork Community Theater's performance of Into The Woods, or to see the Working Girls exhibit at the Greenport Brewery.

Like yard sales? This weekend has two big ones, and both benefit good causes.

Last but not least, bring the kids to a family fun festival, and help out a local school in the process.
